Explore Opportunities

Bring us your ideas.

We help companies, researchers and other partners assess, develop and validate the potential of ‘omics R&D to address a challenge or opportunity. We can employ a number of services or activities to help you; some of these opportunities may be eligible for the Genome Atlantic Genomics Opportunity Review Program.

We can help you:

  • Determine and prioritise areas where ‘omics may provide benefit
  • Identify approaches to ‘omics R&D that may be required
  • Examine technology options best suited to the business and scientific landscape
  • Address gaps in expertise and resources
  • Develop an R&D roadmap for the initiative, including relevant funding sources, which may include:

Find a Partner and Funding

We Know Where To Look.

We connect industry and researchers to develop the best ‘omics solutions to today’s biggest challenges. We use our extensive network of ‘omics experts, companies, economic development and innovation experts, funding agencies and the Genome Canada family to find the best people to address your situation. If you need expertise, funding or partners to help with your challenge, talk to us. We can:

Connect you with ‘omics specialists, research teams, companies and other partners to help identify, shape or refine an ‘omics R&D idea
Facilitate meetings or workshops between parties
Help you find funding for partnership development initiatives

Develop Proposals

Hands On Help Is Here.

We help companies, researchers and other partners develop strategic, competitive and results-focused proposals. Whether it’s $20,000 or $2 million, funding bodies are increasingly looking for clear, effective initiatives that produce real social and economic benefits.

Over the years, we’ve helped dozens of teams pursue millions of dollars in ‘omics R&D funding. We’ve developed a thorough system, and an extensive network of experienced professionals who bring insight and value to each proposal.

We roll up our sleeves, and work with you every step of the way to:

  • Outline and implement a project plan for the proposal development phase
  • Plan and/or facilitate proposal writing sessions
  • Identify regulatory and other technology adoption hurdles
  • Engage subject matter experts, writers and other consultants as needed
  • Identify and help pursue sources of co-funding, as needed
  • Develop a budget that aligns with R&D needs and funder requirements

Hurray! You’ve made it through the proposal development process. Now what?

If your proposal is successful, we can work with the universities, researchers, companies and other proponents to provide 3rd party, neutral advice and guidance through the notice of award stage, which includes the development of a collaborative research agreement, and satisfying pre-disbursement conditions.

Once you’ve crossed those hurdles, we can help with a number of aspects of managing the project itself, including developing a project management protocol, establishing criteria for and/or hiring the project manager, and providing financial management and oversight.

If your proposal is not successful, we can help you re-assess the initiative, implement any feedback from the funding agency, and revisit the R&D roadmap to determine what alternative funding sources you may pursue.

Services FAQs

Our focus is on translational or applied research – that is, genomic or ‘omic innovation that yields practical solutions to challenges facing Atlantic Canada.  In order to achieve this goal, our projects tend to be multidisciplinary and collaborative and include at least one end user partner.   An end-user partner is an organization who will ultimately use the results of a project and could be a company of any size, government departments (local, provincial, federal), non profit organizations (such as industry associations) or health authorities.

We are a small but flexible organization and while we are headquartered in Halifax, we regularly travel throughout the region. We don’t just limit our travel to urban centres either. We will go the extra mile to make sure that wherever you are in Atlantic Canada, our Halifax base isn’t a barrier to your accessibility.

Yes, we do. Contact us for more details.

Very likely, depending on the project. Contact us to setup a discussion on the proposed research.

No on both counts. We will try to secure funding from any funder to support an ‘omics-based research project. Our services are available to any ‘omics project that has an Atlantic Canada component, whether or not it has Genome Canada funding.

No. We often work with partners and collaborators in other parts of Canada and internationally. They could be academics, corporate research scientists, business enterprises, universities, government (of any level) or other institutions. However, to qualify for our help, your project’s objectives must align with our mandate to help Atlantic Canada benefit, socially, economically, or otherwise, from genomics and/or associated technologies.

Quite possibly.  If you are interested in learning about genomics technologies and how you could use them in your company or organization, its best to check with us and we’ll see how we can help.  We specialize in helping find the right genomics expertise and mapping out projects.

No. We’ll work with anyone as long as the project has an ‘omics component, or a component related to a field of study in the biological sciences that ends with ‘omics.’ So it could be genomics, but it could also be transcriptomics, proteomics or metabolomics etc. Importantly though, the project has to be beneficial for Atlantic Canada. If you have questions, get in touch with us.

No, we don’t charge for our services.

Sectors/Focus Areas

Genomic technologies are relevant to key industry sectors and human health, and to all four Atlantic provinces. Genome Atlantic works in four provinces and seven sectors. Our projects cover a broad range of genomic applications.

What Our Clients Say?

We benefit from the stimulus and interest that Genome Atlantic provides ... what they bring is indispensible.

Dr. Marc Skinner

Senior Scientist /Project Manager, Stantec

From an institutional standpoint and as researcher, being able to take a product and move it to commercialization in partnership with Genome Atlantic and Cold Ocean Salmon, is a win-win.
